Why this restaurant is almost always empty is something that really amazes me. After so many years around the city of Trinidad (Cuba) I can't understand why they are keeping employees that rarely have clients. The restaurant is clean, the menu is very poor. If "Palmares" is not able to promote this place properly why not considering renting it to a private investor?

If you have ever eaten a real pasta dish, do not go to this place. What they call spaghetti pesto was truly a disgusting interpretation of the dish. Overcoocked spaghetti with ground pepper, oil and lots (!) of garlic with soap like cheese on the top with some dry oregano. After the meal (had to eat some, too hungry) we told our waiter that the food was ok (not true but we wanted to be polite) but that they shouldn't call it pesto since it isn't pesto. Our waiter got very angry and started to shout that this is Cuba and not Italy. I told him I understand this but perhaps they could call it something else, so that people would not expect to have pesto when they order this dish. It is simply not possible to call something pesto if you don't have the right ingredients, like fresh basil and nuts. The waiter got even more angry and rude and as a revenge, he overcharged us big time. At this point I just wanted to leave and didn't bother to argue about the bill. What I don't understand is why an international travel guide book recommended this place. There are many good places to eat in Trinidad. I even got some wonderful pasta another night elsewhere in Trinidad as a chefs' treat apetizer. Do not go to this place!!!
